SACRAMENTO - A key state Senate committee has blessed a compromise among bedding manufacturers, environmentalists and local governments about how best to keep about 2 million used mattresses a year from being dumped on California streets or into landfills.

The money would create a first-in-the-nation "recovery and recycling" program that would be run by the mattress industry and overseen by California regulators.
